VIEW PHOTOS | Pool & Foam Pit Party AIDS Walk Fundraiser

imageFundraisers for HIV charities take on many forms, from men dressed as debutantes for the Atlanta Cotillion to pool parties and a foam pit. Yes, a foam pit — in the suburbs.

That was the attraction to an Aug. 14 event that attracted more than 120 people to a residence north of the city for a pool and foam party. The annual day-long event — organized by water polo jock S. Jeremy Koziol, hence the pool connection – raised about $800 for Positive Impact’s team for AIDS Walk Atlanta & 5K Run, which is Oct. 17.

DJ Sean Mac was on hand for the festivities that also featured a spread of eats and cocktails, several rounds of volleyball in the pool, a Jacuzzi, and, of course, a foam pit that was quite a hit.
